The Christmas treasure hunt with GPS, also called Geocaching, is adventurous and leads through the relaxing nature. Answer questions, search for santa boots and solve tasks in a team.
Strategy and tactics
After an in-depth briefing you and your team will set off on your way – but which path do you want to take?! Steer your adventurous spirit in the right direction – weigh up and discuss with your team how you want to proceed. The goal: to collect as many of the precious hidden santa boots as possible in the given time. You will be equipped with a programmed GPS device, map and item description to help you find the santa boots as well as your own knowledge and intuition which will certainly be put to the test!
Risks and obstacles
Here you can not only win, which would be nice ☺, but you must also carefully assess the risks as at some points where there is an increased chance of finding a santa boot you may also lose them or will have to pay for certain “services”. How much treasure you find or lose depends entirely on you! In addition, there will also be other skill and knowledge tests to complete before you reach the finish. But, attention: if you’re late at the finish, it will cost you! At the end, the best treasure hunting team will be determined and the ranking will begin – will you be amongst the top?
And another thing…
This adventurous and exciting outdoor activity is perfect as a team competition. Everyone can join in. A nice added bonus: you will gain an insight into some unfamiliar spots and beautiful areas of the region through which the treasure hunt takes you. For example, explore the area of your seminar hotel or headquarter. You can choose your start and finish (for example from the hotel or the company entrance).
All materials, documents, GPS devices, beautiful crystal for the winning team
